Students across the country need increased support given the financial, learning, and health challenges created by COVID-19 and ongoing racial trauma. We organized a series of design charrettes to understand the best ways to build and use a team of success coaches. Our Success Coaching Playbook provides professional learning opportunities for our success coaches and critical support for students. The session will equip participants to implement their own success coaching programs.

Session Learning Outcomes:

  1. Learn how to implement a success coaching program at your school.
  2. Give success coaches tools to embrace strength-based mindsets, high expectations, motivation, and engagement to foster well-being and accelerate academic growth.
  3. Ensure that every young person has access to a safe, supportive, and knowledgeable adult who can effectively serve and guide them through trauma, stress, and upheaval.
